Hall hiring information

The village hall is available to hire for children’s parties, regular meetings, social events and private functions. A great community asset, it has a large sunny T-shaped main room, a fully fitted modern kitchen, access at the rear to a large private tarmac area and a raised fenced lawn, ideally suited for a marquee or play area. 

The village hall does get booked up in advance so please enquire about availability.

Kitchen and facilities

Our fully fitted kitchen was refurbished in March 2019. It is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge, microwave, tea urn and kettles. A serving hatch opens out to the main hall which can be closed as necessary.  

Hirers need to bring their own crockery and cutlery, although there are a few mugs and glasses which can be used. We have a large set of teacups, saucers and tea plates available on request.

The hall has 16 wooden trestle tables (sizes are 12 of 6’x2’6”, 2 of 4’x2’6” and 2 of 2’6” by 2’6”), 80 stackable chairs and a fully equipped kitchen.

Exterior spaces and lawn

To the rear of the hall there is a large tarmac area as well as a raised, fenced grassed area which is large enough for a 4m x 8m marquee (which can be hired at an additional cost). At the front of the hall there is a sloped path from the road leading up to a small concrete area and lawn. Please see the floor plan below.
